Presenting an epic improvised campaign for the Night’s Black Agents Roleplaying Game. Do your Agents have what it takes to face the Lord of the Undead himself?
The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the demon shall cry to his fellow; Lilith also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest. — Isaiah 34:14, a prophecy concerning Edom.
In 1893, a visionary spymaster in the British Naval Intelligence Department launched a plan to recruit the perfect asset: a vampire.
Operation Edom began promisingly. The NID made contact with Count Dracula, deep in Transylvania. A meet was set and made. A safe house and a headquarters in England were prepared.Then it all went wrong.
Dracula betrayed his minder and double-crossed NID. Outsiders – possibly with their own ties to foreign espionage — became involved. British intelligence ordered a sanction: They barred Dracula from England, and hunted him down on his home earth, where – during the great eruption and earthquake of 31 August 1894 – they terminated him, with extreme prejudice and two knives.
Or so they thought.
Dracula lives. Now it’s up to you to finish the job.
Dracula is not a novel. It’s the censored version of Bram Stoker’s after-action report of the failed British Intelligence attempt to recruit a vampire in 1894. Kenneth Hite and Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan have restored the deleted sections, inserting annotations and clues left by three generations of MI6 analysts. This is Dracula Unredacted.
Follow those clues to the Director’s Handbook, containing hundreds of encounters: shady NPCs, dangerous locations, conspiratorial nodes, and mysterious objects. Together they comprise The Dracula Dossier — an epic improvised, collaborative campaign for Night’s Black Agents, our award-winning vampire spy thriller RPG.
The mission: Hunt and kill Dracula now, once and for all, before Britain falls to him forever.
The Dracula Dossier follows in the fully improvisational path of the award-winning Armitage Files campaign. Thanks to the generosity of our Kickstarter backers, the full Dracula Dossier comprises the following books:
A 368-page, full colour hardback book, packed with everything you need to run an improvisational Dracula Dossier campaign, including conspiracy nodes, fully mapped and floorplanned locations, and vampiric beasts; more than 60 supporting characters in vampiric, heroic, or in-between versions; and different versions of the real Mina Harker, Abraham van Helsing, and the other stars of Stoker’s novel.
This new edition of Dracula adds new letters and recordings, diary entries long thought lost, and documents suppressed by Her Majesty’s Government … until now. From the first tentative contact between British intelligence and the un-dead, to the werewolf of Walpurgisnacht, to the cataclysmic disappearance of Dracula in volcanic fire, read the story you’ve known for years … for the first time.
The original 1894 Operation Edom brief, key memos, secret military maps of Transylvania, précis of reports from Balkan battlefronts and German academies alike, and plans for the next century’s battle for control of the Un-Dead — this is the Hawkins Papers PDF.
